DAMASCUS, SYRIA (6:00 A.M)- A seventeen year old Palestinian youth was shot dead last night, after entering an Illegal West Bank Settlement and stabbing three adult-male settlers.
Seventeen year old, Mohammed Tariq Yusuf, was shot dead by an armed Israeli Settler, last night, in the Jewish settlement of “Adam”, North of Jerusalem (Close to Ramallah). The Palestinian youth had reportedly climbed over the militarized fence – separating Jewish Settlers from Palestinians – armed with a knife and had stabbed three Israeli Settlers before being shot and killed.
A 31 year old Illegal Settler was transported to Ein Kerem Hospital/ Hadassah Medical Center, in Jerusalem, later dying of his injuries. Two other Israeli’s remain in hospital, one sustaining minor wounds, the other is in critical condition.
The Israeli Army has claimed this incident as a “terrorist attack” and Palestinian political factions state that the act of rage against the occupying state was an “act of resistance”.
Israel’s policy for Palestinians, whom are under military law, is to bulldoze their homes in the case that they commit acts of what the Israeli Occupation would consider “terrorism”. A statement has been issued, by the Israeli Army, that the village of Kubar has now been raided and occupied by the military in response to the attack.
